A set of physically based retrieval algorithms has been developed to derive from multispectral satellite imagery a variety of cloud properties that can be used to diagnose icing conditions when upper-level clouds are absent. The algorithms are being applied in near-real time to the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) data over Florida, the Southern Great Plains, and the midwestern USA. The products are available in image and digital formats on the world-wide web. The... Topics: ALBEDO, OCEAN BOTTOM, WATER DEPTH, ALGORITHMS, IRRADIANCE

Methods for including the effects of general race and housing compliance and outer race-to-housing deadband (clearance) in rolling element bearing mechanics analysis is presented. It is shown that these effects can cause significant changes in bearing stiffness characteristics, which are of major importance in rotordynamic response of turbomachinery and other rotating systems. Preloading analysis is demonstrated with the finite element/contact mechanics hybrid method applied to a 45 mm angular...

The peripheral vision horizon display (PVHD) was examined. It is contended that many aircraft accidents could have been prevented if, the PVHD had been applied, since all the incidents had common characteristics: night, weather, formation, false horizons, and situation which require head down time. It is concluded that the PVHD could be useful on any aircraft that flies in spatially disorienting/misorienting condition, such as night, weather, or formation. It is suggested that it might be...
